A sensible government in any normal democracy would try its utmost to protect the country’s sovereignty.
But in Thailand, it seems the Pheu Thai-led government is allowing segregation by its red-shirt supporters.
This is proof that a majority of Thai politicians are provincial in their philosophy and capability: they are suitable only at administrating in a provincial level of politics – not the national.
It also shows Thaksin is well versed only in the “divide and rule” tactics – not to “unite and lead”.
